Abstract

Alphanumeric paging systems require a means for entering data. Traditional systems use a data entry ap- paratus with a keyboard to perform this. Figure one illustrates a traditional system. A user needs to call either a centralized location where his message is typed into a data entry device by an operator or the user himself must type the message into a data entry device. The data is then processed, formatted and transmitted to the pager.

ALPHANUMERIC PAGING SYSTEM WITH SPEECH RECOGNITION

by Frank Fernandez and Patrick Kung

   Alphanumeric paging systems require a means for entering data. Traditional systems use a data entry ap- paratus with a keyboard to perform this. Figure one illustrates a traditional system. A user needs to call either a centralized location where his message is typed into a data entry device by an operator or the user himself must type the message into a data entry device. The data is then processed, formatted and transmitted to the pager.

   This invention eliminates the need for data entry devices and data entry personnel. The proposed system contains aspeech recognition circuit which converts spoken words into alphanumeric data. Figure 2 illustrates an alphanumeric paging system with speech recognition. A user would simply call a centralized location and verbally transmit a message into the speech recognition device. The speech recognition device would convert the spoken words into alphanumeric data. The alphanumeric message is then processed, formatted and trans- mitted to a pager the same as in a conventional system. This system can permanently solve the data entry prob- lem for alphanumeric paging.
